Now Is the Time: It’s the Final Courtyard Clearance Weekend.

Have you been to our annual summer clearance sale yet? Or have you just been watching as the prices keep dropping, waiting to make your move? If you haven’t gotten in on the savings, this weekend is the final time we will take the red pen out before the city-wide Sidewalk Sale Saturday August 10.

I guess this is kind of the Gamblers’ Weekend sale. You know the rock bottom price is yet to come, but you also know that selection will be extremely limited once we get to that point. Are you willing to take that chance?

To make your decision easier, we’ve made this last Courtyard Clearance very simple to understand: $100 denim, $100 blouses, and one of my favorite shoe brands, Marion Parke, marked down as low as $250 and $300.

In case you don’t know about Marion Parke, she is podiatric surgeon who started a luxury footwear company after all her patients complained about not being able to find comfortable heels. All made in Italy, each shoe has a medical-grade orthotic. The material and cushioning in these shoes mold to your feet over time; they start out feeling great and just get better.

These deals are so good, the merchandise likely won’t last. So, shop early for the best selection.

I spent the first part of my career as a copy-writer who helped elected officials brag about their support for entrepreneurs. Then I decided to get off the printed page and do it myself. The Shoe Hive made a splash on the fashion scene in Washington, and was named the region’s best shoe store in its first year. Fourteen years later, I have tripled the store’s size and also opened a sister store, The Hive. At The Hive, we offer clothing lines that are sophisticated and approachable like Rag & Bone, Tibi, Raquel Allegra, Ulla Johnson and Veronica Beard. We have tried to fill our racks with clothing you will want to wear all the time, elevated basics that are worth the investment.

Heard the buzz? The Shoe Hive & The Hive are a pair of luxury boutiques in Old Town Alexandria. Featuring both big name designers like Rag & Bone and Stuart Weitzman and smaller brands like AGL and L'Agence, our unique selection and impeccable service are what set us apart.
